Explosion and Cats in Crates
Posted 05 August 2019 - 05:29 PM
911 confirmed the fire and units were already dispatched. Pam smoothly did her part, trapping cats in various parts of the house, and soon we had five howling crates. The fifth cat was the most fun as she just vanished. Pam wasn’t having much luck until she noticed the drawers under the sink opening by themselves. The cat had gotten behind them and was pushing them open to make more room for her to hide. LOL. Meanwhile, I was outside feeding a happy carefree crew earlier than usual, hooking up the horse trailer, and preparing the tack for a ride out with the rest of the crew hopefully following. During some of my outside time the sounds of ammunition going off in the fire could be heard. The neighbors were all calling each other on the phone and by six o’clock the news was spreading that all would be OK shortly. We drove over and found a barn burnt to the ground and still smoldering with our wonderful fire department keeping it contained to just the structure. No animals were in it but three cars and a boat were destroyed. So we went back home, released five unhappy cats, tossed a carrot to seven unconcerned horses, and we’re pleased that our evacuation plan enabled us to be out within twenty minutes or less if needed. Just the beginning of another normal Monday in the summer here.

He knows when you're happy, He knows when you're comfortable,
He knows when you're confident, And he always knows when you have carrots.

I hate fire. I have PTSD since ours any time it is windy- which is September through February now. I live with the Fire Scanner on, sleep with my clothes on.
